Rage isn’t going to win any awards for originality, but it’s an enjoyable, action-packed shooter, decked out in top-notch 3D graphics. The game is set in the near future, following an unfortunate collision between the Earth and a large asteroid....

Before Rage was released there were a lot of unanswered questions floating around. Could Id make another genre-defining shooter? Would the six-plus years of development and the much-touted Id Tech 5 engine yield a sufficiently impressive result?...

Rage shows that id can still do shooters very well, but falls foul of comparisons to other games in the same genre. On its own legs, however, it’s a good solid blast with a touch of nostalgia.More Articles >>>...

RAGE, the PC Game RAGE is a sort of safe style of game. There aren't many surprises, like false doors, porting enemies, hidden items, or trip wires. It's all served up pretty straight forward. This has the downside of not getting your adrenaline fix...

The market seems to be saturated with post-apocalyptic shooters these days, and only the prominent name of iD software was able to garner much hype surrounding the release of RAGE. Amazingly, the legendary developers have managed to carve out their...

John Carmac and id software's latest release is entitled Rage and that is certainly what ATI graphics card users felt when their $60 pre-order game failed to work on their machines no matter how high end they were. Other graphics cards still had some...

id Software. The name of the company is synonymous with the entire first person shooter genre - it’s not something anyone else can claim, and for good reason: they invented it*. So when they release a new one, the world pays attention.Their last new...

Most gamers have a profound sense of respect for id Software since it is this Texan game development studio that popularized and nurtured the first person shooter genre with iconic games like Doom, Quake and Wolfenstein. After Doom 3 in 2004, id has...

If you're looking for a short, straightforward shooter with solid eye candy, good weapon response, and a plot you'll never have to care about, Rage delivers. The co-op multiplayer is a nice touch and the multiplayer racing is great quick matches,...

Rage serves two purposes, as it is both a game and a functional advertisement for the capabilities of id Software’s "id Tech 5" engine. One need only look at screenshots, videos, or watch Rage in action to see just how impressive the engine is,...

These days, it's easy to forget that id pretty much invented the first person shooter. With new heavyweights in town like Valve and Activision's bevy of development teams, and id's last game lying far back in the mists of 2003, anyone who hasn't been...

Rage can collapse into generic corridor shooter at times, but the detailed, dynamic and distraction-packed world and pacing id have built around their trademark monster-bothering is spectacular and charismatic - plus they leave you refreshingly free...

Like "Dead Island" Rage probably could never live up to the hype generated before its release and so in a way it was always going to disappoint in one way or another. Sadly it disappoints in so many that the fairly decent FPS gameplay which forms part...
